Seriously, we’re not playing favourites but I do think the folks at Earth’s Own have another winner on their hands.
My big kid loves the Earth’s Own regular almond beverage (aka almond milk in our home even though I know it’s not ‘milk’ per se) and her parents (that would be us!) love its coconut cousin. The Earth’s Own Almond Fresh Coconut Almond beverage is slightly sweet and super yummy. It’s the perfect little dose of coconut to make my mornings shine. Honestly, it makes my morning breakfast a super happy event.
Product Review: What ingredients are in Earth’s Own Almond Fresh Coconut Almond beverage?
Here are the ingredients that go into the Earth’s Own Almond Fresh Coconut Almond beverage: almond base (filtered water, almonds), cane sugar, coconut cream (coconut extract, water), calcium carbonate, sunflower lecithin, gellan gum, sea salt, locust bean gum, natural flavour, vitamin a palmitate, vitamin D2, riboflavin, vitamin B12, zinc gluconate.
Thoughts about the ingredient list?
Well, it’s on par with a lot of other almond beverages out there. The order of the ingredients vary depending on which brand of almond beverage you buy but generally, they all have an almond base, a sugar base of some sort and most of the other ingredients are similar as well. Of course, what sets this Earth’s Own Almond Fresh Coconut Almond beverage apart is the use of coconut cream. The flavour says it all.
Taste test: how does the Earth’s Own Almond Fresh Coconut Almond beverage taste?
Now, I can only speak for the hubby and I but we both love Earth’s Own Almond Fresh Coconut Almond beverage. It’s creamy, it’s rich with a hint of sweetness without being too decadent to enjoy first thing in the morning (ie. it’s not ooey gooey sweet like your average carton of chocolate milk). It has the consistency of 2% milk and the coconut cream really sings. As for my daughter, she’s not a big fan of it at all and prefers to drink the regular Earth’s Own almond beverage which proves children don’t necessary opt for the sweeter option.
Truth be told, I love mixing my chia seeds with Earth’s Own Almond Fresh Coconut Almond beverage for a super yummy morning treat. I leave the two together in the fridge over night and in the morning I have something that resembles a really healthy tapioca pudding only a million times better.
Yes folks, the Earth’s Own Almond Fresh Coconut Almond beverage is probably my favourite coconut almond beverage to date and since I’m lactose intolerant, I’m grateful it exists so I now have a yummy calcium alternative that I can enjoy. Yes, I’m aware one cup has 10 grams of sugar but I’m also aware of all the other goodies it comes with.
The Earth’s Own Almond Fresh Coconut Almond beverage gets a definite thumbs up from me (oh yes, and the hubby too!).
